    Art Teacher

    Xavier Villafranca

    My commitment to learning and creating have taken me to unexpected places throughout my professional and academic life. I lived and studied in Costa Rica, United States, Hungary, Austria and Sweden. I have enrolled in several university programs in the areas of design, architectural engineering, sculpture and digital media. I obtained a five-year degree in architecture and a BFA in Sculpture, where I also served as a teacher assistant to several courses at the School of Fine Arts at the University of Costa Rica. After working in the field of art and design, I earned an MFA in Digital Media at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.
